The importance of CPD
The IES wishes its members to demonstrate the ability to provide a high-quality service, achieve greater job satisfaction and improve employability. The regular undertaking of CPD activities can enhance career prospects and contribute to your professional performance. The IES therefore believes that CPD should be regarded as an integral part of an environmental professional’s career. CPD is also essential in the achieving and maintenance of Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and Chartered Scientist (CSci) status.
The IES requires all professional members to complete 30 hours CPD a year and to record this. A full breakdown of the CPD requirements can be found on the Professional Development page.
CPD recording tools
The IES currently provides an online recording tool for CPD in the Members' Area.
The IES and sister organisations provide a number of CPD events throughout the year. A list of these can be found on the Events page.
